In Reply to: has anyone driven both Z3 and MB-SLK? posted by SK on November 11, 2000 at 09:13:49:
I drove one before deciding on my Z3 2.3. It's been a year or two (the SLK was brand new at the time, and I managed to drive a used one), but my recollection is that I wasn't too impressed. The interior seemed kinda cheesy with lots of fake carbon fiber, and the engine's sound reminded me of some kind of farm implement. As far as performance goes, it seemed quick enough... The one truly outstanding aspect of the car for me was the top, and even it ate up a lot of trunk space when down.
